A place to get away, relax, have a drink, and or pastry. Very nice and helpful staff. There is a game section too. It's a easy going atmosphere

Everytime I have family or friends visits, I make sure I take them here. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and the coffee/food is delightful. On top of this, they are one of the few places in Franklin that is actually open after 8 pm!

Met some friends here for a beer, They have a good selection of beer and also coffees. It's a small place where the locals meet and the owner's dog runs around. There is no service at the tables.

Went once, didn't know what to expect. Glad my hopes weren't high...had coffee and a pastry..decent prices, friendly, but not for everyone. Guess a lot of kid's parties are here and a place for poetry readings, that sort of thing...beer is available, no liquer license. Too dark for my taste.

Adam and his wife make you feel at home from the very first visit, get there early on music nights and enjoy the cold beer and great baked goods

This is a good place in Franklin to stop by and get a beer or a cup of coffee. It is located on the backside of Main Street so you will have to look for it, but it is well worth the find. I had a IPA which was a good and I would definitely go back to try some... More

This is a great place for a nice sandwich or one of my personal favorites... the homemade soft pretzel!!! Absolutely yummy! Their food is mostly vegetarian and everything is fresh and delicious! Their coffee drinks are delicious and they have a nice variety of tea. Nice cold beer on tap as well as a variety of wine. All in all... More

This local pub and coffee haus is on the backside of main street, and offers that small town feeling! They always have some type of entertainment whether it be music or poetry, it's always entertaining. If you love coffee this is one the best places to go!

Nice menu, reasonably priced. Friendly service. Not fine dining but a cute place to have a bite or drink while shopping or just visiting with friends.
